I decided to go with the theme and wear a 1920 something party dress. I got it from Hong Kong, a vintage boutique in Plaza Midwood. With a few alterations, (done by me, scissors, some fashion tape and a glue gun) it was exactly what I wanted. I didn't want to go all the way flapper, like a performer would wear but I also didn't want a super heavy beaded gown. Those were my only two options at Morris Costumes. I'm happy with how it ended up!
|So here's how the dress started out. Pretty ugly with those puffy sleeves! The velvet was nice though :)|
|I got my hair straightened and made sure that she used lots of pressing creme and hair spray because |
I needed the curls to stay. Don't worry...I got my ends trimmed after this!
|The finished product. I chopped of the shoulder pads and the sleeves. Then I made the neck into a V. |
I tied a knot into my pearls also, but not until after this picture.
I used bobby pins to make a faux bob.
|I made this feather clutch from a Walmart feather duster, black ribbon and a cheap plastic |
bag from the beauty supply store. You can learn how here.
These shoes are really old from bebe...maybe 4 years old.
|My headband is a ribbon, hot glued to a hair elastic. I added an applique from one of my old dance costumes.|
If anyone wants to know how I make headbands, just leave a comment.
My lipstick is MAC Girl About Town. Lipliner is MAC Magenta
|I love this picture because I think it looks most authentic. It's all grainy because of|
my crappy iphone camera quality+black and white thanks to Instagram.

|I got these lace gloves from the beauty supply store also.|
